Hi, Wikisource is not the place for the creation or free-editing of works. Our tasks is to locate Public Domain work, and to reproduce it as it was originally published. If your work is to be as you have designated, then it probably belongs somewhere else. — billinghurst sDrewth 13:21, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

I'll remove the note encouraging free edits. Heyzeuss (talk) 13:32, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

A present for you[edit]

I downloaded the JP2 files, uploaded them back to the IA to rederive and got a DjVu after 24 hours of processing: File:An Exposition of the Old and New Testament - vol 3.djvu. Enjoy! Inductiveloadtalk/contribs 06:22, 29 October 2011 (UTC)

Matthew Henry's Commentary[edit]

Hi, the version we have already on here should not be overtaken by either the 1828 or the 1860 edition. We don't know what edition/version the CCEL one is. It is best to start a new MainPage and transclude to that. To this end I have undone your transclusion of the Preface and will create a new MainPage for the 1828 edition. We also definitely do not want to copy/paste from the CCEL version to the Pages namespace for the 1828 edition. Doing so doesn't prevent the need to proofread the text twice. Cheers, Beeswaxcandle (talk) 23:09, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Sounds good. It looks to me like the CCEL version matches the 1928 version and not the 1960 version because of the bible verse reference format. That's why I later decided to upload the 1928 version, and use that. The CCEL website transliterates the Greek words into Roman script, so it is not a perfect match. I was able to obtain those missing djvu files by emailing Internet Archive and asking them to re-derive the files. Thanks for helping me clean up the index pages.

An Exposition of the Old and New Testament[edit]


Just looking over the scan; I noticed you marked blank pages as proofread. We mark pages without text appearing in the original publication "No text," the leftmost button. Also, we mark pages that need pictures,which have not been uploaded yet, as "problematic." If you have any other questions, let me know :) - Theornamentalist (talk) 17:34, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

Splitting up Matthew Henry[edit]

I'd like to suggest a couple of refinements, which will then make things easier. Instead of putting each Bible book as a third-level subpage under the Volumes, why not put them as subpages under the main-page? e.g. An Exposition of the Old and New Testament (1828)/Genesis The main reason for sub-paging under the Volumes is disambiguation. So, if there was a Chapter I in each volume then we would need to sub-page by volume. But, this work is a single flow and was only printed in several volumes for the sake of practicality. Then, I suggest that under each Bible book sub-page, we can then have a third-level sub-page for each Chapter of the book. e.g. An Exposition of the Old and New Testament (1828)/Genesis/Chapter 3. To make this work you will need to use labelled sections in the Page: namespace. Have a look at DMM where I'm doing this for the various articles. If you'd like to do it this way, I can help you get started. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 20:53, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Automated import of openly licensed scholarly articles[edit]

Hello Heyzeuss,

We are putting together a proposal about the automated import of openly licensed scholarly articles, and since you are an active Wikisourceror, we'd appreciate yourcomments on the Scriptorium. For convenience, I'm copying our proposal here:

The idea of systematically importing openly licensed scholarly articles into Wikisource has popped up from time to time. For instance, it formed the core of WikiProject Academic Papers and is mentioned in the Wikisource vision. However, the Wikiproject relied on human power, never reached its full potential, and eventually became inactive. The vision has yet to materialise.
We plan to bridge the gap through automation. We are a subset of WikiProject Open Access (user:Daniel Mietchen, user:Maximilanklein, user:MattSenate), and we have funding from the Open Society Foundations via Wikimedia Deutschland to demo suitable workflows at Wikimania (see project page).
Specifically, we plan to import Open Access journal articles into Wikisource when they are cited on Wikipedia. The import would be performed by a group of bots intended to make reference handling more interoperable across Wikimedia sites. Their main tasks are:
  • (on Wikipedia) signalling which references are openly licensed, and link them to the full text on Wikisource, the media on Commons and the metadata on Wikidata;
  • (on Commons) importing images and other media associated with the source article;
  • (on Wikisource) importing the full text of the source article and embedding the media in there;
  • (on Wikidata) handling the metadata associated with the source article, and signalling that the full text is on Wikisource and the media on Commons.
These Open Access imports on Wikisource will be linked to and from other Wikimedia sister sites. Our first priority though will be linking from English Wikipedia, focusing on the most cited Open Access papers, and the top-100 medical articles.
In order to move forward with this, we need
  • General community approval
  • Community feedback on workflows and scrutiny on our test imports in specific.
  • Bot permission. For more technical information read our bot spec on Github.
